The Thomas Sharp House

Water Street

Beautiful 3 bedroom home nestled on the bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. Sleeps 6

$140/night during the week.  $175/night weekends

The former home of Thomas Sharp is located on the banks of the Mississippi River and is nicknamed The Warsaw Boat Club. The home features 18" thick native stone walls, fireplaces and an ambiance that encourages relaxation. You can appreciate the river view, enjoy a BBQ and end the day with a spectacular sunset all from the deck. Thomas Sharp lived here in the 1840's during his time as Editor of The Warsaw Signal and assisted in the martyrdom of Joseph Smith.   You will enjoy the boatclub if you are a couple, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), and big groups.

The two-story home overlooks the banks of the Mississippi River.  John Wilcox (who built the home out of native stone in 1826) came to the area in the 1820’s and was one of the original founders of Warsaw.  His sister Elizabeth married Isaac Galland, who was instrumental in selling land in Nauvoo and Montrose to the Mormon settlers in 1839 and after. Galland joined the Church for a time and even served a mission in the early 1840’s.  John Wilcox’s first wife died and he married then 17-year-old Hannah Hardy in 1838.  Wilcox died a short time later and in 1842 his widow Hannah then married bachelor Thomas Sharp.  So, imagine Thanksgiving dinners, with fiery anti-Mormon newspaper editor Thomas Sharp at one end of the table, and Mormon missionary and relative Isaac Galland at the other end!
